In St. Petersburg in the Great Gostiny Dvor on October 28, the project "Wednesday" will open. It will combine an educational lecture hall, a store of designers and artists, sewing coworking and creative project offices.
The project will occupy 1.5 thousand square meters on the second floor of the Gostiny Dvor along the Garden Line. As Tatyana Tretyakova, representative of Sreda, explained to Life around, the creators of the project “want to revive” the conservative space. The names of the creators are not disclosed - this is an “initiative group of Petersburgers” with extensive experience in organizing events in the field of Russian fashion.
In the educational lecture hall of the "Environment" project, discussions will be held with representatives of the fashion and art industries. The lecture program will also include weekly intensives on professional issues.
The store in the "Environment" will present the work of Russian designers and artists. Designers include ZDDZ, Inshade, Otocyon, GO by Olya Glagoleva, Plan B, Form, Fakoshima. Among the artists - Alexander Morozov, Asya Marakulina, Semyon Motolyanets, Veronika Rudyev-Ryazantsev. "The selection criterion is energy and talent, a clearly readable and understandable concept, a stable position in the market," the creators of the project explain.
You can register for the opening of "Wednesday" on the project website. Opening program October 28:
